We were sure that this beautiful Siamese, found at a subway stop on a very rare snowy day in Rome, would immediately find a home.

A middle-aged cat, mistreated for his first part of life, has struggled to recover his health in Torre Argentina. After a year at the shelter we can say that he succeeded! A good giant, like the comic Obelix, who loves humans a lot.
When he has been found in 2010, Narciso had a herpes and because of it he l lost the sight in one eye.

The right cat for people who love liberty very very very much!

Although the 10 year old cute, round faced cat was cared for in a colony, he needed professional veterinary care for a condition called entropion, a nasty eye problem whereby eyelashes turning inward scratch the cornea and cause irritation, inflammation, pain and eventually affect vision.

Giotto is an older cat and has less chance of being adopted but he looks forward to meeting his adopters at a distance in the nursery!
